Maybelline ~ My liking and respect for this brand has been reawakened recently. I have expressed my love for their mineral blushers, and I'm still loving them...but now there is a new Maybelline obsession in my life...Lash Stiletto! OH. MY. GOSH. This mascara, for me, is not far from off from being considered as a HG, honestly! Other than the very highly perfumed scent, I can't fault this mascara...it gives me amazing length, doesn't flake or clump and seperates the lashes really nicely! I'm already considering purchasing more of these :) I have very sensitive eyes, and this hasn't irritated them one bit...and I've worn it every day since purchasing about 2/3 weeks ago!
Girls Aloud ~ OK, so this is perhaps slightly obvious, they will NEVER be on my out list...but the anticipation of seeing them at the o2 arena in May is driving me crazy! I've heard so many rave reviews about their performances, outfits etc...and I'm resisting looking/watching because I want it all to be a surprise! I'm so fricking excited people!!! I also got a couple of the Girls Aloud lashes by Eyelure a while ago, and haven't tried them out yet, but I just can't stop looking at them, sooo pretty! I got Cheryl (duh!) and Nicola - my two fave members! I will 100% be wearing them to the concert...eeeeeee!
Gok ~ I'll keep this short and sweet...a man who can make just about any woman feel A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. This guy has got some serious charm skills! I heart Gok ♥
Floral prints ~ I was of the rather old fashioned opinion that floral prints were dowdy, frumpy and reserved for the older generations...how wrong can I be? Take one look at some of the recent additions to my wardrobe and it's floral prints galore! Perhaps it's the bouts of sunny weather we've been having, but there is something so cheerful and feminine about putting on a pretty floral top! I'm trying to be more adventourous, and get pieces that are a little different, so prints are in, and plain is out!
May ~ It's going to be a busy, busy month for me, hopefully full of more ins than outs! I'm really excited about Girls Aloud, my boy is turning 30 (so perhaps I should quit referring to him as a boy?!) and I'm meeting some of my favourite guru's, who have turned into firm friends :) We're going for a big girly make up shop, of course, and it's just what I'm in good need of right now!
Swapping ~ I'm still swapping ladies! >>> www.swapsiesuk.co.uk <<< class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_0">Stef (aka The Lip Print) in Oz, and I can't wait to receive my goodies from her...she has impeccable taste, so I know I'll love it :)
Trashy mags ~I have never really bought them, but I needed some change for a car park ticket last week after an impromptu shopping session, so bought the first cheap mag (which just so happened to have Cheryl and Nicola on it!) to get change from my £20. I shall not name drop here, but my whole experience of reading, or should I say distastefully flicking through, just reinforced my belief that mags like that are simply a good for nothing waste of trees and energy! I may outrage some people with that statement, but hey, it's my opinion! What have 'celebs' done to deserve their sweat patches, spots or cellulite being magnified and circled in magazines, to be scrutinised and criticised by people with nothing better to do...crikey, if someone did that to me they would have a full time job right there! It's downright disgusting and so, so degrading...I will never purchase said magazine again, no matter who is on the cover. Sensationalist twoodle.
Hair ~ I am NOT liking my hair right now...not one little bit. I have a love hate relationship with my hair about 99% of the time...it always seems to be pretty soft and nice to the touch, after it's been freshly washed. However, it spends about 10% of the time clean, for about 1 hour after washing, then 90% being greasy, lank and generally uninspiring! I had it cut quite short at the start of the year, and I liked it...but I keep seeing photos of my with long hair, and I really prefer how I look in them. I'm not happy with the stylist and colourist that I use, but she's a family friend and has done my hair since the day dot, plus she's a lot cheaper than mainstream salons...she just isn't cutting the mustard though. Any recommendations?
Stress ~ I am feeling it big time, and while I'm trying my hardest to maintain my sunny, happy disposition, they strain I'm under is taking it's toll on me...I just want to feel like myself again, and not a snappy, irritable shadow of myself...I feel like I have permanent PMS, and it's really naffing me off :(
Let downs ~ I'm feeling rather let down by some people in my life at the moment, for various reasons...it just annoys me that you can't rely on some people for anything, and it bugs me! I won't divulge much more detail than that, and I don't want to moan, but it's just one of my really big peeves right now...argh!
